I am planning to build a new e-bike for myself. I want to ask how important is the parts like shifter, derailleur and freewheel.
Will they affect the speed. As i live in a hilly area i don't want to have trouble while climbing. And if they are important which part is more important. Sorry for my newbie question
I think most of you are pretty familiar with it but i want to mention. I will not use pedal assist as i am in USA. I will use throttle .
I don't want to spend a great money for some upscale shimano products. Appreciate all answer
